 Greetings From The President
Dear Friends and (Jo-workers:

Allow me to extend to you the greetings of the season and to
hope you have spent not only a profitable and pleasant vacation
but that you are beginning your best school year.

Our association continues to have problems whose solution will
challenge our concerted actions based on intelligence and a willing-
ness to accept mponsibilities. To this end we wish to emphasize
the request that has recently been released by Prof. A. S. Wilson,
Secretary-Treasurer at our association, asking you to fill out with
caretulness the questionnaires and send them to Dr. G. D. Wilson.
These reports will furnish the data for completing an investigation
begun under Prof. Blanton’s administration and will be of vital im-
portanoe touching the salarstsue of the Negro teat-has of Ken-

Permit me to call your attention also to a few other edumflonfl
high poins that have occurred during the summer. I wish first to
mention the 80th annual meeting of the N. E. A. which convened in
Detroit in June, 1937. One of the high points of this meeting was
that it represented the active membership of over 200,000 teachers
in the public schools of America. Plans are being made to increase
the membership by an additional 800,000 new members Within the
next decade. The N. E, A., with a membership of one million teach-
ers, will not only be the largest and richest organization of beach»
ers in the world but its influence in setfing educational standards
and policies Will be unlimited. For this reason, all groups dissatis-
fied with present inequalities and differentials based on sex were
present creating sentiment for their cause and disseminating propa-
ganda for themselves. However, for that American group that suf-
fers most because of inequalities and the introduction of differen-
tials based on race and color, there “ms no active propagandizing.

This brings to the fore the fact that Kentucky, like all the other
states having a dual system of education, with its K E. A. and its
K N. E. A., had no authorized representation in the “Delegate As-
sembly." Her seven representatives were selected by the K E. A.
When it is recalled that the "Delegate Assembly" is the legislative
branch of the N, E. A, in whose hands standards and policies are
fixed, it will be seen how impormnt it is that all groups have a rep-
resentative in that body.

We hope not to ignore the tenets of becoming modesty in re-
porting to you that the situan‘on for Kentucky was saved somewhat
by the local unit of the Lexington Association of Teachers in Co]-
ored Schools becoming an affiliated unit of the N, E. A. which gave
this unit representation in the “Delegate Assembly" of the N, E. A.
This is the first Negro unit in the state to have ever had this dis-


 fincflon. The L. A. T. C. S. of Lexington has now acquired aniliated
membership in the N. E. A.

The K. N. E. A. hopes to acquire a new N. E. A. smtus. We
believe you will be interested to know that encouraging and hope-
ful steps have been taken looking forward to a new status for the
K. N. E. A. in its relations with the N. E. A. The Association will
meet in New York next year. Mrs. Caroline S. Woodruff, oi Ver-
mont, was the successful candidate over her Louisiana rival in be-
ing elected as the next president at the N. E. A.

A brief discussion of the annual meeting of the National Asso-
ciation of Teachers in Colored Schools along with the progress that
has been made in “Teacher Retirement Fund” for Kentucky and
other pertinent issues worthy of consideration will be taken up in
the next issue of the K. N. E A. Journal.

In closing, however, may I state that it is the hope or your
president that each member of the committees thus far appointed
will hold himself ready to start the work planned for each com-
mittee. He wishs also to extend to the members or the Associa-
tion a welcome to make suggestions for the improvement of the

Yours very respectfully,
W. H. FOUSE, President of K. N. El A.

Editorial Comment



The Gist Convention of the Kentucky Negro Education Asso—
ciation, which met in April of 1937 at Louisville, marked the end of
sixty years of existence for the organization. This convention was
one of its most successful, the enrollment being 1420 of the 1500
colored teachers in Kentucky. The theme of the program, "Educa~
tion for Improving the Economic Status of the Negro." was featured
in all of the major addresses of the convention. Two of these ad-
dresses, that of Pres. John W. Davis of West Virginia State College
and that of Ms. Mary McLeod Bethune, President of Bethune-Cook-
man College, are published in flais issue of the K. N. E. A. Journal.

The Annual Musicale, State Spelling Bee and programs of the
various departments and conferences were much better than heretns
fore. The 17th Annual Exhibition was well attended and featured
the sixty years of progress in the education of the Negro. The K.
N. E. A. on this, its sixtieth anniversary (1877 to 1937) portrayed
the history of Negro education in Kentucky in the pageant, "Educa-
tion Marches On.” The details of the happenings at the 1937 con-
vention of the K. N. E. A. are outlined in this issue of the Journal
and each teacher is urged to read its entire contents.

The 62nd Convention of the K. N. E. A. will be held in Louis
ville April 13 to 16, 1938. The newly elected president, W. H. Fouse
of Lexington, and the executive secretary, Atwood S. Wilson of
Louisville, are already at work studying needs in the education of
the Negro and planning a program to help our teachers to teach
for building more adequately the type of citizenship desired in our
youth. Features of the 193738 program will include the Annual
Spelling Bee, the Annual Musicale, the 18th Annual Physical Ex-
hibition, an Art Exhibit, subject conferences of teachers, depart-
mental programs. and addresses by leading educators of the United
States. During the school year various committees will be at work
and will report their findings at the April convention. Chief among
these committees will be the Research Committee, which will make
a study of. the salary inequalities among white and Negro teachers
in Kentucky. The K. N. E. A. office will send out three issues of
the K. N. E. A. Journal and K. N. E. A. Newsettes twice each month.
The K. N. E. A. Newsettes are for the bulletin boards of our vari-
ous schools. The office of the Secretary or the K. N. E. A. will
be ready at all times to cooperate in anything that leads toward the
improvement of the youth of Kentucky. Let us work together to
make this a banner year in the colored schools in Kentucky. While
we have done well l'n the past, We must not rest on our laurels.
We must press on. The command comes at this, the beginning of
another school year—"Forward, March!"



The research committee of the K. N. E. A. is headed by Dr. G.
D. Wilson of the Louisville Municipal College. The main work of
this committee at present is the making of a study of salaries for
Negro teachers in Kentucky. The spirit of the school code passed
by the Kentucky Legislature in 1934 was to set up a single sched-
ule for salaries of all teachers based on merit, training. and experi~
ence. There has been a general tendency to pay the Negro teacher»
a lesser salary than the white teacher, the contention being that
the Negro teacher can live on less salary. The K. N. E. A in its
study will analyze the economic status of the Negro teacher and
compare his needs with those of the white teacher to determine the
merit of this contention. Questionnaires are being sent to all teach-
ers and it is hoped that they 'will he returned promptly to Dr. G. D.
Wilson at the Louisville Municipal College. Each teacher should do
his part and get his questionnaire in at once. These questionnaires
have been sent to all principals and county organizers for distribu-
tion. Write for a questionnaire if you did not receive one. The
findings or this study will be reported in the February, 1938 issue
of "The K. N. E. A. Journal.”



In September, 1937, there appeared the first issue of the Na—
tional Educational Outlook, 3 monthly magazine featuring the edu<
cation of the Negro. Chief among the leaders sponsoring this pub-
lication is Dr. Ambrose Caliver, senior specialist in the education
of the Negro in the Office of Education at Washington, D. C. Else—
where in this Journal will be round an advertisement concerning
this magazine. The subscription rate is one dollar per year and
those who would subscribe should mail their subscription to the
office of the K. N. E. A. secretary. The K. N. E. A. has planned to
cooperate in the circulation of this new publication. Each subscrip-
tion sent in by the K. N. E. A. will permit the organization to re
celve a fee for the subscription. The publication also plans to pub-
lish articles of special interest to Kentudty teachers. The K. N. E. A.
secretary is one of its contributing editors.


Elsewhere in this issue of the Journal is the picture of the
new annex at Western High School at Owenshoro. This annex con-
tains an auditorium gymnasium and also rooms equipped for the
teaching of industrial arts. The annex is modern in construction
and cost the city of Owenshoro $42,000. The superintendent. Mr.
J. L. Faust. and the Owensboro Board of Education are commended
for this evidence or their desire to have an up-to~date colored high
school in their city. Prof. S. L. Barker, an ardent supporter of the
K. N. E. A. and its activities, is the efficient principal of this pro-
gressive school. This schoool has an A rating by the Southern
Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.



The cover of this issue of the Journal carries a picture 01 the
recently-remodeled Steward Hall on the campus of Louisville Muni-
cipal College. In this hall are the administrative offices, the library,
faculty and student lounge rooms, the auditorium, and classrooms
~01 the social sciences and humanities divisions. The library, which
is open to the public as well as to students, contains 6300 bound
volumes, not including magazines, newspapers, and other periodicals,

The college occupies an entire city block hounded by Seventh,
Eighth, Kentucky, and Zane Streets. There are three other campus
buildings: Parish Hall, which houses the science lecture rooms and
laboratories; Student Building, in which are the music rooms, the
college book store, the health center, and an assembly hall some-
times used as a Little Theatre; and the central heating plant. The
value of buildings and grounds is estimated at $350,000.

David A. Lane, Jr., formerly dean of West Virginia State Col
lege, assumed the deanship of Louisville Municipal College at the
beginning of. this school term‘ The staff associated with him is
composed of fourteen instructors, two librarians, a physician, a
nurse, an administrative secretary, and a part-time coach of athletics.

The College offers four-year curricula leading to the degree of
Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science and is fully accredited as
a class A institution by the Southern Assodation of Colleges and

Secondary Schools.

out that the Negro should seek
to enter other vocations than the
professions and that he should
elevate his economic status by
participating, to a larger adept,
in business. What he termed
‘the racial difierential’ makes it
necessary for the Negro to be
very efficient in his methods of
doing things in order that we
might conunand the respect of
all people and thereby gain such
recognition as would improve
the economic status of the
